Baby Boomers/Empty Nesters

In 2016, Temple Beth El joined a Union for Reform (URJ) Community of Practice and was awarded an Impact & Innovation grant by the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte to embark on a journey to engage and re-engage our Baby Boomers and Empty Nesters.

A Steering Committee and Work Group was formed and planning began in late 2016.

On March 29, 2017 we kicked off a Listening Campaign with over 200 people in attendance and continued In-home Listening Circles during the Spring 2017.

On August 30, 2017 we held a Big Reveal event where we revealed the top themes that came from the Listening Campaign and explored actions in small interest groups.

This website page is under construction and will offer a place for Baby Boomers and Empty Nesters to get the information they need about upcoming activities.  To get us started here are two relevant documents.
